Well, it appears the Supreme Court has ruled that the administration has overstepped its bounds where military tribunals for gitmo inmates are concerned: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/06/29/AR2006062900928.html and various other sites are carrying the story. Several things about this: 1. This is not saying that Gitmo is illegal, but it does say that the military cannot conduct military tribunals without Supreme Court Jurisdiction. 2. I see this also as a power play by the Supreme Court as a counter to the "Detainee Treatment Act" which specifically limited the Supreme Courts jurisdiction where Gitmo was concerned. 3. Brings up the question of exactly when are military trials legal and under what circumstances. Most likely this is just the first step of several signaling the closure of Gitmo as a holding area for detainees. Bush has been saying in the last few months that he wishes to close it and this will most likely signal to him that the time to do so is here.
